Publisher Comments:

First impressions (and second ones!) count, whether you are an intern or a CEO. Lauren A. Rothman addresses an age-old dilemma: how to be appropriate and stylish in the workplace. Based on a decade of experience in the fashion industry, she addresses the basics of fashion and executive presence by offering advice, anecdotes, and style alerts that help readers avoid major fashion faux pas at the office. Style Bible: What to Wear to Work is the must-have resource for the modern professional, male or female, climbing the ladder of success. Lauren identifies the ultimate wardrobe essentials, and reveals shopping strategies and destinations for the everyday person. Style Bible, complete with helpful illustrations, is the go-to manual on how to dress for every professional occasion and a valuable resource for understanding dress codes by industry, city, and gender so that your visual cues will make a strong impact. Make a commitment to being better dressed at work with Style Bible.

Review:

"If Rothman has one thing to prove in her book on career dressing, it's that fashion in the workplace still has rules. For example, if a man is wearing a suit: 'Your jacket collar should sit flush against your dress shirt's collar, revealing one half inch of your dress shirt (collar) in the back.' Observe these rules, or find yourself running in place career-wise, the author cautions. Rothman promotes a conservative and safe approach for men and women. For the fashion-blind, the author outlines dress codes across industries and regions — many Washington, D.C., residents 'still think black is a color to be worn only in funerals.' She covers grooming basics and accessories, but her best chapter is 'Shop Your Closet,' in which she provides advice on editing and organizing an existing wardrobe. The author has a fashionista's cattiness — castigating 'skin belts,' 'muffin tops,' and 'back cleavage,' and noting similar problems for men. However, Rothman's focus on career dressing will enable the sartorially confused to get dressed every morning as they head out to the job, and may help them look better on weekends, too.
